Richard Carter

 

Water sector specialist with focus on sub-Saharan Africa

 

 

Professional info

 

I have worked for over 40 years on the natural science, social science and engineering of water development and management, focusing especially on the poorest countries of sub-Saharan Africa.

 

I undertook my undergraduate, Masters and PhD studies respectively at Cambridge, Southampton and Cranfield Universities. After training as a geologist, I took a MSc in irrigation and water resources engineering, and later completed a PhD in water policy and management related to semi-arid west Africa.

 

I am driven by a passion to contribute to poverty alleviation in low-income countries and communities. I pursue this goal through long-term partnerships with public sector, private sector and non-Governmental organisations in developing countries. I joined Cranfield University at Silsoe in 1981 after several years working for consulting companies in UK and overseas. I was appointed Professor of International Water Development at Cranfield University in 2002. I have published more than 100 papers, articles and reports relating to my work.

 

​In 2006 I established Richard Carter & Associates Ltd, to extend and deepen partnerships for rural development in low-income developing countries. In 2009 I took the position of Head of Technical Support at WaterAid, one of the largest international NGOs dedicated to water, sanitation and hygiene development. In 2012 I returned to full-time consulting as Director of my own company.
